Book Expo of America - 2016

Well BEA this year was held in Chicago as opposed to the typical Javits Center in New York City. The idea of going to Chicago since I had never been was super fun and exciting because now it became a big trip with the girls as we were driving there from NYC area. This BEA was a huge let down honestly, it was small, people were rude, the book selection wasn't the greatest, and it was just a hot mess. This is the one event a year I look forward to, it's like my Christmas and I obsess about the next year as soon as the one I just attended to ends. This was my 4th year attending BEA so I think I have a good idea of what it was suppose to be and my expectations were not met at all. For such a huge space they did not optimize it to it's fullest potential at all, they had so many fewer publishers and authors it was just so disappointing. Also now I know NYC is known for its rude people and fast paced atmosphere but I barely ever have an issue at BEA as everyone is usually so friendly and excited because they are also fellow book lovers. In Chicago many of the attendees and also some people at the publishing booths were very rude and I was extremely surprised and taken back. Only plus side of this trip was I got to enjoy a small vacation with my best friends and fellow book obsesses and we ate some good deep dish pizza! *Although no where near as good as NYC ;)* Thankfully BEA is back in NYC for 2017, although they got rid of the half day and added an extra day for Book Con, which I won't comment on because it hurts too much. I look forward to BEA 2017 and CAN NOT WAIT to see what's in store for this year!
My book haul for 2016
- As you can see it is much smaller than usual as I had to get rid of some because my car was too heavy with Aℓℓ of our books and there just wasn't that great of a selection itself at BEA that I enjoy.

Stuck Up Suit by Vi Keeland & Penelope Ward

This was a DNF at 50% for me unfortunately but I am still writing about it on here because I do not think it was a bad book in fact before the 50% mark I was LOVING it, it's just that once a certain "problem" came I was really angry and upset since it was not something I enjoy when it happens in books and I just couldn't read any further. I will not post the spoiler on here but on my Goodreads account I did write why I stopped reading so if you do want to know what the "problem" was I will link my small review here so you can check it out. I still think if you don't get bothered by much when reading that you would love this story it really was a great story and I loved the hero and heroine A LOT! So check it out if you haven't already  <3
